I recently replaced the starter in my van. After doing so I started it and began to drive. About 5 miles later I list 100% power (lights, engine, EVERYTHING) while driving. After pulling to the side of the road I tried to start it but all I get is a click. I checked the the grounds, the alternator, replaced the battery, the starter solenoid and relay, and checked all fuses. Why did I loose all power and now I can't start it? Oh and no the motor did seize.
Engine pulsates up & down, up, & down "at cold start only," then runs evenly, but lacks major power. Bad Gas Millage, but no emmisions smell really. It's a 3.0liter short-wheel base van w/ rebuild 80,000miles ago. It has been sitting for over 2yrs. I'm getting it back to running cond. I've changed plugs, bad coil wire. Checked, Cleaned, & Bench tested MAF, MAP, BARO, Purge Val. Sol. replace several vacc lines, etc. QUESTION is does it, or does it not have an EGR Valve? Where is it located? Thanks,

I want to change my oil pan and wondering how long it takes and what is needed tool wise. Also which other parts need to be removed.

Chirping clicking noise started at rear of engine about a week ago. 178,000miles on engine. Ford aerostar 3.0.
I loaned out the van; it came back with the side door not being able to open. I've tried locking, unlocking, prying, and removing the top inside panel, but not a budge. How do I get it open before it can even be fixed?
Has been running rough for a while. Happened before and I put it in neutral and pushed it forward then in drive then park and it started right up. Then drove 1,00 miles no problem. Each time after sitting a day or two problem returns.
Small amount of air comes through the defrost when any of the positions are on the dial. Can't get A/C to come through the proper vents How do I fix?
Is my engine blown
Oil sending unit seems ok; I apply gas w/ brake to maintain a steady gauge at stops. I have added "no leak" to oil, and it helps for a while. I thought this May be vacuum problem with regulator valve on side of transmission ( an oil diaphragm inside), and have the part, but no tools/ equip to replace it. Before I send it to a shop, I would truly appreciate some insight as to whether this is advisable.
